Nothing is known about Miguel before the outbreak started aside from the fact that he was a Mexican Naval Officer. He also knew Luis before the apocalypse.
Miguel is among the Mexican Navy stationed in Baja California, patrolling the coast. He boards the Abigail alongside Vazquez. He & his fellow officer negotiate a trade with Luis and Strand. After seeing that the boat is too big for just two people, he demands to see the rest of the boat. After a disagreement, he and Vazquez shoot at Luis and Strand. While both officers are killed, one of them manage to mortally wound Luis.
While Luis and Victor were trying to negotiate a deal too cross the border into Mexico, Miguel and his colleague demand to search the boat for more people and that they pay more gold per person. Luis and Strand decline Miguel's offer. He and his colleague respond with violence. After a small shootout, Luis or Strand managed to kill him and his colleague, though not before Luis was mortally wounded.
